Weight Loss Wednesday!

We did it!!

Danny and I both won the FitFluential DietBet! I’ll admit that I was a little worried there that we wouldn’t make it, but we made it by the skin of our teeth. :)

I ended this DietBet about two pounds higher than my lowest recent¬†weight, which really isn’t much of a difference.

This is my before and after picture – where I am two pounds lighter. I will be taking new before and after pictures soon.

I think that the weight I am currently at is the weight that my body is comfortable with and a weight that I am happy with. It seems like anything below what I am now is too hard to maintain.

In a little bit over a year, I have lost approximately 32 pounds, and I am very happy with that. Danny has lost almost 25 pounds since January, and he’s doing great. I am proud of both of us.

My goal now is just to maintain my current weight, continue to eat healthy and workout, watch my weekend eating, and to be happy.

Today’s Workout

  • Elliptical – 12 minutes
  • BodyPump – 60 minutes
  • 2.4 miles, treadmill

This morning it was storming, cold, and windy outside. Jaden was happy because he got to use his umbrella.


But I had to complete my 15k training on the treadmill rather than outside today. Today’s part of the plan only called for two miles. I actually walked/ran the two miles because my legs were super sore today.

After my workout, I had a Clif Mojo bar.


I actually bought this bar because I had a coupon for it, and it ended up costing 50 cents, but I really liked it and would buy it again.

I also had a well-deserved small package of Cadbury mini eggs that I stole from my kids and hid until the DietBet was over.


Don’t worry – they got so much candy and chocolate for Easter that they didn’t even know these were missing. In fact, I could probably eat half their Easter candy and they wouldn’t even know it.

Have a great afternoon!

  • If you did the DietBet, how did you do?
  • What goals do you have for yourself?
  • Do you like storms?
